Déclaration d'une délégation de la Commission parlementaire de concertation sur la directive sur le temps de travail
The EP delegation of the Conciliation Committee made a statement on 4 May 2009.
Parliament and Council could not find a compromise on three crucial points: the opt-out, on-call time and multiple contracts. This is the first time that no agreement could be reached at the Conciliation stage since the entry into force of the Amsterdam Treaty which significantly extended the scope of the co-decision procedure. The United Kingdom will therefore keep its opt-out and current legislation will apply. Members of the EP will debate the topic, there will be no vote.
The Conciliation Committee, composed of delegations from Parliament and Council, decided that it was not possible to reach an agreement. This decision was adopted by an overwhelming majority within the EP delegation (15 votes in favour, 5 abstentions and 0 against). The main stumbling block was the opt-out. LISTE DES PLANSSHOTLIST
